    Very nice mate, mods are spot on. In terms of an exhaust a twin 2.5" would be the way to go.
    Remember, Post up some vids of the supercharger whine and exhaust when your done!

    Got the same car bud, just a series 2.

    How much is an exhaust for these babies? dual cat? Is it gonna make much of a difference in performance?

    I'd be interested to see how you go with the mods. Ive only put the 10psi pulley on, CAI next week (pod setup from MACE)

    mines a series 2 aswell.
    honestly i dont really know but ive seen a few pacemaker systems for about 900 so i would say a shop would charge around 1500..?
    ill let you know how it goes but it may be awhile as i hardly ever have money. im gonna get the same CAI (Y)

    Yeah i know right! Your's is like the first i've seen...apart from mine.

    Well im the third owner and i dont even know how they got my details, randomly get a letter in the mail about 2 weeks ago asking to go to your nearest holden dealer for a inspection of the sunroof...Go to holden and apprently the rubber perishes and they need to replace that... All under warrenty of course...But of course mine wasnt fitted in the factory at make, so i have to go to some place in brisbane. Who does my model sunroof....All a big pain in the ass to me when my sunroof seems fine haha...So i havent done anything more...

    easy as mate, you just unscrew the stock on pull it out, un clip bulk or wiring and plug in the new one n do all the screws up
    ive heard any cluster will work as long as its the same series as yours
